Horse Racing picks for Keeneland on Wednesday, October 19: American Starlet can shine

John Velazquez (8) aboard Audible trained by Todd Pletcher

There is plenty of great horse racing across America on Wednesday, including at Keeneland race track. We have been on fire with our picks for a long time now and are up +271.24 units with our race selections to our recommended stakes dating back to August 5, 2021. Let’s keep it rolling!

Here are our best bets for today’s action at Keeneland race track.

2:04 pm ET Keeneland (Race 3) – Lady Goldstart 2/1 (2-star play)

Lady Goldstart has demonstrated good form in allowance optional claiming contests at Canterbury Park this year, including when 1 1/2 lengths 2nd over 5 furlongs on a good main track there in August.

Bidding to complete a hat-trick that day, the 4-year-old is a versatile sort tactics-wise and having advertised her wellbeing with a couple of 4-furlong breezes at Keeneland this month, the daughter of Upstart is selected to register a first victory at this meeting for handler Ian R Wilkes.

3:08 pm ET Keeneland (Race 5) – American Starlet 2/1 (2-star play)

American Starlet tried to make all when placing 2nd in a 5 1/2 furlong allowance contest on a firm turf track at Saratoga on her penultimate start. She appeared to struggle with the 7-furlong trip when fading into 6th, beaten 8 lengths, at Kentucky Downs subsequently.

She represents the Wesley Ward yard, who do well with their sprinting juveniles, and the daughter of Twirling Candy is taken to deliver a victory under John Velazquez now dropping back in trip.

3:40 pm ET Keeneland (Race 6) – Cyclone Mischief 9/5 (2-star play)

Cyclone Mischief was purchased for $450,000 as a yearling at the Keeneland September sale last year. The son of Into Mischief showed plenty of ability when finishing 3/4 length 3rd in a mile maiden special weight at Churchill Downs in his debut last month.

He has impressed in his works since, including when delivering a 1:00.80 5-furlong breeze at the same venue on October 11, and is taken to get off the mark at the second time of asking for trainer Dale Romans.
